Danny Matos Caged Are the Songs That Set Me Free

Description: After releasing his great 2016 project, ‘The Tarmac,’ Danny Matos was at a crossroads. The gifted New Yorker had already written much of what is now featured on his stellar new album, ‘Caged Are The Songs That Set Me Free,’ but he wasn’t sure what to do with them. But it was through listening to those songs and embracing their beauty and pain that he was able to share them with the world—or, in his words, set them free. He also had the help of Rusty Mack, a multi-instrumentalist and fellow New Yorker who produced the entire album.

Musically, Matos says everything came together so naturally because of his shared kinship with Rusty. The two have worked together for several years now, but Matos never consider what they do as “work.” “I think Rusty and I work well together because although we are two different people, we share similar pain - and ain’t that the truth for so many people?”

It certainly is, and it’s why ‘CATSTSMF’ is such an important and incredibly relevant project. It arrives at a time when we as a society are moving closer to better understanding how we handle mental illness, even if we’re not completely there yet.
